I’m enjoying the holidays with my wife in West Virginia and today I’m catching up on some reading of FCM. Python is a popular free and open-source programming language and is a reasonable choice for learning a new language in 2012.
Full Circle Magazine (FCM) is a free magazine dedicated to the Ubuntu family of Linux distributions. A multi-part Python programming tutorial has been appearing in FCM for months now and the first sixteen parts are available as a special PDF of two dedicated issues. You can download them here:
So the links above get you the first sixteen parts. As of this writing, FCM has published 29 parts to the Python programming tutorial and if you want more you can find parts 17 through 29 in the monthly issues, again they are free and I think well-written.
